to the third power or cubed Yeah that's why I

got this fancy name Mathematicians are oh so good at

labeling things Apparently while Kyle needs find a volume of

the box Because volume measures how much three dimensional space

there is inside And that space is going to be

filled with bunch cubes Right So the total cubic inches

is four times ten times six at two hundred forty

cubic inches We gotta find the volume of each of

the cubes to see how much space they take up

while sitting in the box All right well let's see

uh one of Cuba's two inches And so we're going

to take eight cubic inches per cube Right So lastly

we got to see how many of these fun little

cubes can neatly fit inside the box Or rather how

the space in the box can be divided up for

the cubes there right So if it's two hundred forty

cubic inches total and assuming the cubes fit in there

neatly with no air space we can divide them by

the eight cubic inches they are each And while the

answer is just two forty divided by age which is 00:01:17.56 --> [endTime] thirty cubes and that's it
